Gotta think Jason Blake has the inside track on the Masterson, playing with leukemia and all.

And from what I understand, Peca would gladly award it to him

Depends where Blue Jackets are in standings at the deadline. If he gets injured again, there may not be many takers or any trade value. If he's healthy and we're in the playoff hunt, I'd keep him, he makes the team better.

It depends on a couple factors.

1) Can he stay healthy till the deadline? If so, his trade value will go up but so will his value to the Jackets.

2) Can Howson and his agent agree on a contract? I think Peca likes Columbus (purely opinion) so he probably wants to stay here. However, if both sides are really far away on a contract, we'll move him.

3) Does he take the Doug Weight approach? Peca could resign with us in the off season either way, allowing us to rent him for picks/prospects that will help the team in the future.

My gut tells me he's resigned but it's still up in the air at this point.

When he plays he makes a huge difference to the team. You can tell just watching games he is in the lineup vs not. It is frusterating he has trouble staying healthy. Usually I hate injury prone players, but he is an exception. I am very glad he is here even with his injury problems. It would be great if they could resign him.

I would rather keep him. I think his value to the team is much more then his value in a trade at this point. The team has other means of building for the future, they already have a good prospect pool coming up. If their biggest goal is to make a run for the playoffs this season, and perhaps even the next couple seasons, it is best to try and keep him here even as he is late in his career.

I'd rather keep him too but I can understand why we would trade him.

And I don't think he's late in his career. Aside from a broken leg last year, this is the most injury plagued he's been in his career. If he can bounce back and stay healthy, I think he has a good 4-5 years left in him. He's 33, that's no longer old in hockey. Chelios is what, 40 years older and still effective. Age doesn't mean anything anymore.

Peca has a cheap contract for what he does on the ice. I'd be happy if we resigned him for about the same we pay him now. The only problem with his injuries is that it's hard to plan the longterm line-up and get some chemistry if he keeps missing a lot of games.

Yeah, he is a 50-60 game depth player, capable of winning you games when he is healthy, but he can't be a building block of a competitive team with his health.

I'd love to see him back for 1.5 mill. There is alot of good that young players can learn from him.

I also want him back and think we should be able to resign him for pretty cheap...1-1.5 mil should get it done and he's the perfect type of veteran to have on a team.

I was excited when Peca signed after Svitov left. It felt like we got the better end of that deal. He's been one of my favorite players on the team (when he's played) this season. He's gritty, has the leadership & veteran qualities, makes plays & when he's in the lineup, the team usually wins. I'd like to see him come back, maybe with a letter on his chest depending on how things shake out.

If we would get a decent return from Peca, I would trade him. I like the effort he brings when he's on ice... But that's just the thing, when he is. Some players are just too fragile and Peca is one of them. For the first two lines we need centers who are there for 80+ games.

Well thats the asterisk that would go by his name on my "please bring them back" list. Ideally he would have nothing to with centering Rick Nash next year, but I get excited thinking about a 4th line that can play 12 minutes a night with him in the center. Add to that 6 minutes of PK/2nd PP unit time and he'd be worth 1.5

This sounds about right to me. I love what Peca does for the team from a maturity perspective. Without being there on the bench or in the locker room, I obviously don't know how he's received, but it just appears that he has a real stabilizing influence that helps a lot. I'd be happy to have him back next year if we don't overpay -- and if we don't use it as an excuse to skimp on the fabled #1 center or PPQB.
